 Africa is ready. The future of a new generation of procurement is not about pushing more paper faster. It is the elimination of paper and red tape. It is the embracing of the digital revolution to ensure that orders are received faster, goods get shipped faster, invoices get sent instantly, and suppliers get paid faster – with transparency across the entire process.
